Last week in Nashville, Tenn., the 24-year-old country singer handed Reid the keys to a new wheelchair-accessible van. Chevrolet, the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes and Rimes, a supporter of the veterans group, teamed up to present the van to Reid. “She’s wonderful,” Reid said of Rimes after returning Monday to Florida. Iraq veteran Peter Reid has gotten a boost from LeAnn Rimes. A 2004 mortar attack in Iraq’s Anbar province left Reid, a Navy Seabee, partially paralyzed, blind in one eye and dependent on a motorized wheelchair. He also suffered a brain injury, and bits of shrapnel remain in his head and body. Reid hadn’t left his Palm Bay, Fla., house for months because it took two people to lift him into and out of his van. Now he’s looking forward to shopping trips with his wife, Michele, because of a gift from Rimes. last_img read more
